Current Projects & Future Plans

David has published his first chapbooks of poetry Blue, Civil Wars, and Trois and life in/verse at The Tripping Muse Press. His most recent chapbooks, "little punctures" and "Peripheries", were published at Really Serious Literature and The Bitchin' Kitsch, respectively. His new chapbook "Eating Pears on the Rooftop" will be published soon at Finishing Line Press.

His first feature-length collection of poetry and prose Indelible Fingerprints was accepted for publication by Alien Buddha Press March 2019, published April 2019. His second book of poetry Blood Honey will be released by Anxiety Press in January 2022. David's third book little punctures, an illustrated collection of micro poems, is a creative collaboration with Luca Bowles (a.k.a. Mambo) from the UK and will be published at @RLYSRSLIT sometime in 2022. David is also diving "head first" into short-story writing that will mostly encompass oeuvres of dirty realism and the surreal.

David Estringel IS BACK on Channillo with his serialized column "Words from the Fringe: The Big, Bad World of Outsider Lit!" Follow David, a published "outsider" poet and short-fiction writer, as he bulldozes his way through the literati, rigid literary journal/magazine aesthetics, and rejection form letters on his never-ending quest to be legit. Be on the lookout for errant poems, short stories, interviews with other "outsider" artists, and all-around shenanigans, as David shares what it is like on the outside, looking in. 

Writing Workshops Dallas

David is a contributor for Writing Workshops Dallas, an independent writing school for hardworking, talented writers who want to strengthen their voice, develop a greater understanding of craft, and forge a path to publication along the way. Their mission is to bring writers' writing out of the wilderness and into community. WWD offers multi-level writing courses, seminars, and individual consultations to fiction writers, nonfiction writers, poets, and screenwriters. No matter the stage of a writer's career, there is a place for them at Writing Workshops Dallas. WWD's classes are inclusive and intentionally small, offered on a rolling basis throughout the year, and taught by award-winning authors.

What editors are saying

This is an excellent batch of writes...Thanks for sending some work our way.

What editors are saying

I adored all of your pieces, but I was completely taken with 'And The Beat Goes On'. Your hypnotic rhythm and evocative language captivated me and I'm thrilled to have it in our first issue of littledeath. (Lucky me that the other magazines didn't snap it up first, hm?)


What editors are saying

Thank you for being part of 50 Haikus Issue #14. We love your poetry!

--50 Haikus - Prolific Press, Inc.

What editors are saying

I really like the two poems and the story, which is a refreshing kitchen sink realism I don’t often encounter these days. They are all three delicious and thematically holistic.

What editors are saying

Just letting you know I'll be publishing "Sucking the Marrow", very cutting piece of work.

--Writ in Dust

What editors are saying

Love your poetry, it's a shame those others were taken as we really liked them all. We would love to publish "Smooth Whiskey" and "Killers."
